Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell to Star in WELCOME TO ME

Kristen Wiig is currently in talks to reteam with her Anchorman: The Legend Continues co-star Will Ferrell in a new comedy called Welcome To Me. Ferrell is producing the film alongside Adam McKay whose wife Shira Piven (Fully Loaded) is set to direct the comedy. 

The film seems like the perfect gig for Wiig. The story follows a "woman with dissociative personality disorder who wins the lottery and decides to spend her winnings on a cable access talk show about her life." The script for the film comes from former staff writer of the The Big Gay Sketch Show, Eliot Laurence.

Wiig is one of the funniest female comedic actresses working right now, and I hope she ends up doing this one. Thanks to the success of Silver Linings Playbook, I think we're going to start seeing a lot of these mental illness dramedies popping up.
